What a difference four years makes. In 2008 we had McCain v Obama & now its Romney v Obama. What a difference. Obama's running us off the track at 98MPH and the other two would do it at 85/90MPH, big spenders & hawks all. Kinda reminiscent of the Dole v Clinton elections. Don’t forget the wonderful Bush years of debt, deficits & UNNECESSARY wars. Oh! The Republicans offer real alternatives to Democrats don't they? When Steve Forbes & Ron Paul ran as solid, alternatives to Establishment RNC hacks the RNC scuttled their campaigns in the primaries to prevent upsetting the apple cart in Washington. The Establishment loves the status quo. The Republicans have got to get serious & stop running toned down RINO Democrats against real Democrats.

Actually, Republicans don't run them, they are chosen by voters in the primary process. If you want candidates more to your liking then stop whining and start explaining to people why they should care about these principles.
If you aren't going to DO SOMETHING, then you are part of the problem.

If you are just voting against somebody then you are a part of the problem as well. Suppose Romney wins the election, and four years from now he turns out to be what everyone said he was, a pretend conservative. The Democrats will simply nominate Hillary Clinton, and people like you will once again tell us how we all have to vote for the lesser of two evils again, no matter what a disgrace he has been. Ron Paul addressed standing room only crowds anywhere he went, Mitt Romney not so much. It isn't me who needs to convince you of the value of principles, it's you who needs to convince me of the value of parties.

Romney is not my preferred candidate, but he is a much better candidate than McCain was, and he will be an enormous improvement over the current occup-(ant/ier) At the very least, Romney is not going to be throwing up roadblock after roadblock to business creation/expansion, he will not be sidling up to the Muslim Brotherhood, and he won't be a damn autocrat!!!!

So, you go ahead and wait for your perfect candidate. I will be happy to vote for him, if there is a nation left for him to lead.

Barack Obama is beating Mitt Romney.

Wait- Romney and Obama are tied in Pennsylvania.

And how about all those bungled calls from the NFL fill-in refs?

Americans are seriously pre-occupied as we enter the fourth quarter of 2012. Obsessions about the football season and “Dancing with The Stars” are a pleasant diversion from our present hardship and gloomy future, and frustrations over the logic-defying presidential polls makes for interesting talk show fodder.

But after the election – and after the close of 2012 – Americans will need to grapple with myriad problems in our government. Whoever...
